MEASURES to keep visitors safe at Russells Hall Hospital have been unveiled in a new video in a bid to reassure people who may be set to visit the hospital as more services return.

A one-way system, face coverings, hand sanitisation points, floor markers, rules for using the lift and colour coding for wards are some of the measures taken to minimise the risk of catching the virus and to help social distancing.

It is hoped the information will reassure people who may be nervous about visiting the hospital in light of the coronavirus pandemic and comes as more services restart at the Dudley hospital.

A spokesperson for the Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust said: "As more of our normal services resume, we know that coming to hospital right now may make people nervous.

"We're doing everything we can to keep everyone safe on all our sites and have created a video to show people the measures we have taken and what they can expect."

Visting remains suspended on all general wards, with the exception of maternity, children’s areas and neonatal, where visiting is restricted to parents and birth partners only.
